Minimally-Invasive Tenex Procedure - Atlanta, GA

Tenex Health TX

For many patients who are living with tendonitis and other conditions in which their tendons are affected by damaged tissue, chronic pain is an everyday part of life. What you may not know is that that damaged tissue is actually the source of that pain, and that by removing that tissue as part of your tendonitis therapy, you can find relief and accelerate your body’s healing process to reach a faster, more effective recovery.

The Physicians Spine & Rehabilitation Specialists are proud to utilize the Tenex Health TX® System as part of our chronic tendonitis treatment services. Tenex treatment is a minimally invasive procedure designed to remove damaged tendon tissue that causes patients pain and stimulate a healing response in the affected area. This allows patients to return more quickly to their normal daily routine, and to experience long-term relief from chronic pain.

Tenex Treatment for Chronic Tendon Pain

Tenex is an exciting technology for providing minimally-invasive treatment to patients with tendonitis and other conditions that affect the tendons. But how does Tenex work, exactly, and what can you expect when you come in for your therapy?

Here’s what happens during a Tenex procedure with The Physicians Spine & Rehabilitation Specialists:

  • Your Physicians specialist will use completely non-invasive ultrasound waves to view the inside of your affected area, identifying the damaged tendon tissue without opening your body at all. 
  • Once the damaged tissue has been identified, your doctor will use a local anaesthetic to numb the area before using the Tenex ultrasonic tool to safely break down the tissue, ultimately removing it.
  • The incision required to use the Tenex Health ultrasonic tool is very small, making the procedure minimally invasive, and the ultrasonic energy itself has been designed to be extremely precise. This way, only the damaged tissue will be removed, while the healthy tissue will remain unharmed.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Tenex treatment painful?

For most patients, Tenex treatment is not painful at all. While there may be some mild discomfort as the local anaesthetic is applied, once the area is numbed, you shouldn’t be able to feel your procedure happening.

Will Tenex treatment require a hospital stay?

5. No! Tenex is an outpatient procedure, meaning you are free to go home following your therapy.

Will I require stitches following Tenex treatment?
